Joe Girardi was leaning toward keeping Derek Jeter in the leadoff spot at the beginning of Spring Training. But now comes word that "there is a growing push" for Gutty, Gritty Brett Gardner to take over the spot. I don't know the details of this "growing push," but I hope it's true. Gardner has to bat near the top of the lineup; he gets on base (and runs and takes pitches) too much not to.
